Aeromexico, Mexico’s global airline, launched the new code share agreement it signed with EL AL Israel Airlines during the IATA Annual General Meeting held in Cancun, Mexico. The agreement was signed by the Chief Executive Officers of both airlines, Andres Conesa for Aeromexico and David Maimon for EL AL.

During the code share agreement signing ceremony, Aeromexico CEO Andres Conesa, said “This alliance reflects our consistent pursuit to offer our customers new and attractive options to connect to different destinations, where our partners allow us to expand our extensive flight connectivity network even further. On this occasion, we thank EL AL Israel Airlines for sharing our commitment and vision, which I am sure will allow us to strengthen the ties between Mexico and Israel even more.”

In recent years, passenger traffic between Mexico and Israel has grown notably at a more than ten percent annual rate, exceeding 35,000 passengers per year, which represents an average of 50 tourists per day.

”The increasing business and tourism ties between Israel and Mexico makes it a natural for both EL AL and Aeromexico to move forward to launch this code share agreement. We are confident that this agreement will be a success and be the best option for our mutual passengers,” said David Maimon, President & CEO of EL AL Israel Airlines.

This new code share aims to provide customers with different route options with enhanced flight connectivity possibilities through the airports served by both carriers, such as Toronto in Canada, as well as Amsterdam, London, Madrid, and Paris in Europe, creating more than ten alternative flight schedules between Mexico City and Tel Aviv. The codeshare flights will be available for sale as of August 2nd for travel as of August 14th, 2017.

Thanks to this new code share agreement, both Aeromexico and EL AL consolidates their commitments to provide more and better connectivity options while also helping strengthen tourism and commercial ties between both nations.
